A 51-year-old man came to our department of dermatology complaining of recurrent purpuric events (RPE) in various organs (nasal mucosa, intestine, articular joints) 1 year after cholecystectomy. The first reported manifestations of RPE were epistaxis and a large asymptomatic bruise on the right thigh, followed by other episodes, which occurred at irregular intervals and were apparently unrelated to drug consumption. The bruises frequently occurred first on the arms and forearms then on the rest… Expand

TLDR
Cases underline the importance of partner notification in cases of RS and the examination of RS patient’s partner allowed to confirm the infectious aetiology of the syndrome and also to diagnose and to treat the PID in his wife. Expand
Psychogenic Purpura (Gardner-Diamond Syndrome).
TLDR
An overview of psychogenic purpura is provided and the case of a 15-year-old girl is presented, most commonly seen in women, but isolated cases have been reported in adolescents and in males. Expand
Autoerythrocyte sensitization(Gardner–Diamond) syndrome
TLDR
Autoerythrocyte sensitization (Gardner–Diamond) syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis of purpura, especially in patients with psychiatric problems. Expand
The Mayo Clinic Experience With Psychogenic Purpura (Gardner‐Diamond Syndrome)
TLDR
The relatively low bleeding scores together with laboratory assessments support that PP is primarily a dermal rather than a systemic bleeding diathesis and for patients with unexplained recurrent ecchymosis a diagnosis of PP should be considered. Expand
Cutaneous small-vessel vasculitis.
TLDR
Cure requires elimination of the cause when possible, as well as therapy with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents, corticosteroids, dapsone, potassium iodide, fibrinolytic agents, aminocaproic acid, immunosuppressive agents or even monoclonal antibodies, depending on disease severity. Expand
Diamond‐Gardner Syndrome: A Case Report
TLDR
The history, histology, and positive "skintest,” carried out by subcutaneously injecting autologous erythrocytes obtained from heparinized blood, confirmed the suspected diagnosis of Diamond‐Gardner syndrome. Expand
Bleeding manifestations apparently unrelated to coagulation or other organic disorders: A tentative classification and diagnostic clues
TLDR
The features of bleeding conditions apparently not associated with vascular, platelet, or clotting dysfunctions are studied, including Münchausen syndrome factitious or fictitious, suicidal or homicidal bleeding, bleeding due to self-punishment, stigmatization, the battered child syndrome, and psychogenic bleeding. Expand
[Gardner-Diamond syndrome in a young man: A case report and literature review].
TLDR
G Gardner-Diamond syndrome is a rare and unrecognized disorder, which should be discussed in the presence of ecchymotic or purpuric lesions that do not have a diagnostic orientation, which enables initiation of an appropriate management, but also limits unnecessary additional explorations. Expand
The spectrum of plasminogen activator-dependent fibrinolysis-altered psychoinduced vasopermeability syndrome.
TLDR
The word stigma is focused on the latter definition although sometimes nineteenth-century dermatologists used the word to describe even a “minute” flat, red spot on the skin, the tiniest in the continuum of focal cutaneous vascular ectasias. Expand
Gardner-Diamond syndrome as a differential diagnosis of lupus
TLDR
A case of a female patient with multiple, intermittent, nodular, ecchymotic and painful lesions related to various stressing events that was treated as lupus is reported below. Expand

Autoerythrocyte sensitization; a form of purpura producing painful bruising following autosensitization to red blood cells in certain women.
TLDR
Four patients with purpura who manifested an unusual response to bruising were studied, and special studies utilizing skin testing procedures indicated an abnormal tissue response of sensitivity to red blood cells. Expand

Cutaneous fibrinolytic potential, tPA dependent, is reduced in Behçet's disease
TLDR
The studies showed that the plasma fibrinolytic activity was reduced in the patients with Behçet's disease and there was impaired cutaneous fibrinelytic potential, tPA dependent, in those patients with venous and arterial thromboses. Expand

Two patients with painful bruising and haemorrhagic episodes have been described, appears to be a new syndrome with an increase in fibrinolytic activity. Expand
Fibrinolysis and the nervous system
TLDR
The effects of a nonenzymatic drug, Pitressin, and a number of stressful neurologic procedures on the human fibrinolytic system are reported and certain aspects of the relationship of the fibralelyticSystem to neural function will be examined. Expand
Immunochemical quantitation of antigens by single radial immunodiffusion.
TLDR
By standardizing the technical conditions of the experiment it is possible to use this principle for the immunochemical determination of antigens, and the lower limit of the method was found to correspond to 0·0025 μg of antigen, and to an antigen concentrations of 1·25 μg per ml. Expand
